What this fan does well is avoid making mechanical or electrical noise at even moderate speed. It's mostly just the wooshing of air until you get closer to max speed. My other fans produce a mild hum when running at moderate speed. The air wooshing does seem a bit lower pitched as well.
All in all these do indeed seem to "be quiet".
I also replaced the stock 120mm case fan that came with my Fractal Define Nano S case with one of these. I thought the Fractal was quiet, but again this fan blew it away with true silent running. And my system temps are actually a degree or two lower (although that could just be random difference).
Again, the sound difference can't be overstated. These fans are EXTREMELY quiet and perform very well. I would buy more in a heartbeat for my next build.
I already picked up a few Noctua fans (Noctua Fan with Focused Flow and SSO2 Bearing, Retail Cooling NF-F12 iPPC 3000 PWM x 2 on a radiator ; Noctua SSO Bearing Fan Retail Cooling NF-R8 redux-1800 PWM x 2, 1 bottom in-flow and 1 back top outflow) but I wanted to try be quiet! since they've gotten some pretty good reviews.
I placed this as an exhaust fan on the top/back of the case. Not silent (what can be) but much quieter than the stock fan and moves air well.
Also, the attachment points are module. I just started putting the smaller plunger-style connectors onto the fan frame without paying much attention. I tried for a while to remove the plunger connectors but I couldn't quickly figure out how to remove them to use the screw-based connector so I went with the plungers. Both use rubber on the connections for anti-vibration attachment.
The plungers do an unexpectedly good job in securing the fan to the case. And if I get another bq! fan, I'll probably go the plunger route again.
All in all, a well-engineered fan on-par with Noctua.
These fans are more expensive than most, but they were the only fans I could find rates up to 2200 RPM, which equaled the rating of my stock Cooler Master fans. I must say I now understand why they are more expensive than other fans. They are not in the same league as other cheap computer fans. You realize this the moment you see the box they come in. This is Ferarri vs Volkswagon Beetle, here. You are getting what you pay for.
These fans are far more quiet than my stock fans ever were, and my core temperature is running four degrees lower than normal, down from 26° to 22° C. That is quite significant, and demonstrates that Cooler Master puts the cheapest fans possible in their coolers to hit lower price points.
I'm glad I bought these, as this purchase saved me the hassle of installing a new CPU cooler. I will look for these fans for my next build when the time comes.
It's worth the price to have a fan in your case that you can run at 100% while still keeping your system quiet. If it were any cheaper, every fan in my case would be this.
One thing to note: The tool-less rubber mounting pins are HARD to remove, so be sure you want these fans where you want them before installing.
